Who wants to wash their hair with whip cream?

Personally, I would rather eat whipped cream. I loved it when I was a kid and I had big plans when I was little to grow up and eat nothing but whipped cream. ; )
So when I saw:
Wash Your Hair with Whipped Cream and Hundreds More Offbeat Uses for Even More Brand-Name Products by Joey Green at the library, curiosity got the best of me and I checked it out.

Here are ones I might actually try:

~Extend the life of freshly cut flowers with 20 drops of Chlorox bleach in each qt. of water
~Use 1 cup of Aunt Jemima syrup to prolong the life of a Christmas tree
~Remove stains from carpets with Barbasol shaving cream
~Use ChapStick to stop bleeding while shaving
~Remove white rings from wood furniture with Miracle Whip
And here's a highlight: Tang isn't just for drinking. (not that I ever do anyway) The citric acid in it will clean your toilet and get rid of grunge and soap scum in your dishwasher.


Now these, were just goofy:

~Use your hairdryer to dry salad greens or warm your bed sheets
~Use Alberto VO5 hairspray to immobilize flying insects (Imagine the fun I can have in Florida with mosquitoes, if I have nothing better to do, that is)
~Put Crisco on a snow shovel to prevent snow sticking (Can't try that here)
~Use a Frisbee as a pet dish
~Jell-0 dissolved in warm water can be used as styling gel (not trying that one!)
~Use a tooth brush to stake up small plants (lovely!)
~Clean wallpaper with day-old Wonder bread (I knew that stuff wasn't for human consumption!)
~And last but not least, condition your hair with 1/2 cup of whip cream once a week and leave it on for 30 minutes...If you can keep from eating it.

Not sure if I'd consume Tang either . . . especially if it can be used to clean toilets!!! Funny!

Oh no! I drank Tang ALL of the time in high school. My 1st boyfriend's mom would always have Tang and Baby Ruth bars for me when I would come over. Don't tell me there's anything in that book about Baby Ruth bars?! ;-)

See you tomorrow!

Oh Wow, we learn something new everyday! Thanks for sharing!
Here's one more trick: Right after I got married, I was headed to work, and the battery in my car was coroded over, so I poured coke over it, and wa-lah, it ate the gunk off, and my car cranked!! I love coke, but imagine what it does to our insides if it's that potent! lol.
